'Lawnchair' Larry Walters got an Honourable Mention in the Darwin Awards. It looks like Rev Adelir Antonio de Carli, a Roman Catholic priest from Brazil, might not be quite so lucky.
  • Heh, I saw that on Brazilian guy on the TV news last night. Sad...but random.
  • "Then he strapped himself into his lawnchair with some sandwiches, Miller Lite, and a pellet gun." I'm no expert, but that sounds like a lousy way to strap someone down. I know! Let's ask Medusa!
  • would he not have been better off with the lawn chair?
  • maybe God figured he was half way there, he'd just pick him up and help.
  • Jealous that Catholicism doesn't include that rapture business.
  • "We are absolutely confident he [priest] will be found alive and well, floating somewhere in the ocean," she said. "He knew what he was doing and was fully prepared for any kind of mishap." That's the treasurer that said this, folks. THE TREASURER. Anyone curious to know why she encouraged him in this stupidity?
  • Of course, the Australians have made a movie about it. I watched part of it last Saturday - I wonder if the broadcaster was being prophetic.
  • I saw the movie The Astronaut Farmer last year. I was fascinated. Did the guy really build his own damn rocket and orbit the earth successfully?
